THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN ORDINARY MINISTER
“Never ‘Eard of ‘Im.” An Autobiography of Ron Holmes. Ron starts his autobiography with the asserting that biographies are only ever about famous people. If anyone by chance came upon his, they would say, “Never ‘Eard of ‘Im.”
Ron’s self-depreciating assessment is typical of a humble servant of Jesus Christ, who served him as a AIF Chaplain during World War 2, who accepted the call of God with Shirley his wife and four sons, to minister in half a dozen locations in Victoria and South Australia. None of these churches were great, but his people skills were great and in every place progress and a growing endearment to an ever increasing circle of friends followed. I can think of a dozen churches who desperately need a minister with his skills and commitment.
Ron was a great builder of churches and in their mid –eighties are still at it. He was a keen radio ham with a world wide circle of friends. He was also a professional magician, and could keep audiences enthralled.
If you want to know what a minister of religion did in the twentieth century this is as good an account as you could read. A faithful minister whose focus was God and whose Lord was Jesus Christ. So good and readable was this book, I read all 190 pages in one sitting!
